David spends the first night of his return journey at an inn in Yarmouth, where Mr. Barkis calls for him  the next morning in his carrier. David tells the driver that he sent Peggotty the message that was  requested, but Mr. Barkis replies that "nothing come of it." He asks David to repeat the message to  her and to say that he is "a-waiting for an answer." David still does not realize that this is a marriage  proposal. When David arrives home, he finds his mother in the parlor. He is surprised to find her  holding an infant, which she introduces as his new brother. The Murdstones being out on a visit, Peggotty, David, and his mother have supper together and  spend a happy evening. David relates Barkis's message again and learns its meaning for the first  time.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
